Description for BMW 5-Series 1978

Runs and drives. Was a daily driver until recently, when it developed a fuel leak (likely a worn hose). It has been parked since (approximately 2 months).
Clutch and transmission are excellent. Disk brakes are good. Great, smooth power from this fuel injected classic.
Has original paint with a patina only 40 years can earn. Very small rust spots (pictured) but has been a Southern car for at least 20 years. The body is very straight with no evidence of accidents or frame damage.
The sunroof was sealed shut by the previous owner to prevent leaking. It is water tight.
Original interior is in fair condition. It's all there, albeit worn, except for the original radio which was removed. Drivers seat is torn and seized in place.
The blower motor works, but the air flow is weak. A/C is weak.
The only power window switch currently working is the drivers side.
If you're reading this, you likely know more about this model of Bimmer than I do.
The odometer shows approximately 190,500 miles, which is accurate.
This is a great candidate for restoration, rat rodding, or just putting a little work into and enjoying as is.
Please message me with any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.
Car is located in southeastern NC. Buyer is responsible for pickup. You will need it trailered or towed due to fuel leak.
Clear title in hand.
